the newest gap model

Rilyn came home from school today with a wiggly top front tooth.  She has lost four already and today she was GOING to get out number five (because her friends were over and she wanted everyone to see her tooth come out.)  🙂  I tried to get it out, but I told Rilyn after several wiggles that it wasn’t quite ready-maybe tomorrow.  She was determined though, since her friends, (younger and who have never lost any teeth) were staring at her wide-eyed.  I was pretty impressed.  She ate a granola bar, yanked on her tooth and pulled it out herself.  It was the bloodiest tooth yet, (because it really wasn’t ready to come out that minute!) but she was satisfied as everyone came over to look at her bloody tooth and missing gap.  Here is her new smile!
